Strange (Or Smart) Start to the NFL Season

I got this article from today regarding what the NFL's Oakland Raiders are doing in their preseason camp. Apparently, the coach has decided to fore go any padded practices for the first week and work more on basic fundamentals. Although certainly not commonplace within the professional realm of sports, I think this is a very good idea given the fact that the Raiders have been one of the worst teams in football this decade, not only on the field, but also within management and ownership. I'm not sure if your could convince coaches to take this mindset, (especially in football because of the "tough guy" attitude) but I think this is a very good approach for a struggling team and it goes to show that EVERYONE needs to master the basics.
